We weren’t there — we weren’t invited is more accurate — so it’s taken a few days to get a handle on who attended the private party hosted this week by Patriots owner Robert Kraft and featuring a performance by his good friend Sir Elton John.
We’re told the Rocket Man played — without a band — for about 90 minutes, and the set included many of his most popular songs: “Bennie and the Jets,” “Your Song,” “Candle in the Wind,” and “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me,” among others.
The crowd included, as you might expect, a few current and former Patriots, notably Andre Tippett, Willie McGinest, Lawyer Milloy, Scott Zolak, and Julian Edelman. Other boldfacers enjoying John’s greatest hits included former GE boss Jack Welch and wife Suzy Wetlaufer, Boston Police Commissioner Bill Evans, Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck and wife Emilia Fazzalari, Combined Jewish Philantropies president Barry Shrage, Bank of America’s Anne Finucane, Attorney General Maura Healey, Bain Capital’s Paul Edgerley, Abby Johnson’s husband Chris McKown, Providence Equity Partners CEO Jonathan Nelson, W.B. Mason CEO Leo Meehan and wife Gigi, Pops conductor Keith Lockhart, Viacom vice chair Shari Redstone, restaurateurs Steve DiFillippo and Ed Kane, stylist Pini Swissa, and ACE Ticket CEO Jim Holzman.
Like last year, when Kraft enlisted the Rolling Stones to play, the party was held in a tent-like temporary structure set up on the field at Gillette Stadium.
